DIY? you need to invest in a repair manual. You will want it next time anyway. Autoparts store, or filepeep.com if they have it, or try manualslib.com

How to adjust valves on Toyota 1991 23re engine


Very carefully my friend. Kidding. Ok, remove the valve cover and anything in your way of removing it. By hand, with a socket and ratchet, on the crankshaft bolt head, turn the engine over to get #1 piston to top dead center on compression stroke. You'll need to find out what the valve lash should be in order to adjust properly, I run the 22R engines and only have specs for that, and have a feeler gage to place between the valve head and rocker arm. Check the gap on the intake valve for it is in position to adjust now because the cam lobe is at the farthest away from the valve. If it needs adjusted closer, turn the nut loose and screw the center in to tighten and out to give more gap, then tighten the jam nut after adjusted. Now turn the crank to bring #3 to top dead center and adjust that intake. Once done go back to #1 exhaust and adjust it. You'll know when the #3 is TDC when the rocker is loose on intake valve along with #1 exhaust. Now bring #4 piston up to TDC and adjust intake valve. Like I said, you'll know when it's @TDC when that rocker is loose, but with the spark plugs out you can stick a screwdriver in the plug hole to be sure it's up. Firing order on 4 cylinders is 1-3-4-2 so do your adjustment in that order for each intake valve and go back to the last one adjusted and do the exhaust valve.

What is inlet or exhaust in land rover discovery -2000


The intake valves(routed to the intake manifold/injectors/throttle body) usually have a tighter clearance specification than the exhaust valves(ruted to the exhaust manifolds/catalytic converters,etc).This is due to the exhaust valves running at a higher tempurature than the intake valves.The only engine I have had long enough to require adjustment of the valves is my 77 Plymouth Volare'(it has a Slant Six 225 with mechanical lifters).My father put about 95,000 miles on it without adjusting the valves.(supposed to be done about every 20,000 miles).My Barracuda was getting to the point of weekly repair,so I decided it was time for a complete teardown and a nut and bolt restoration(after 18 years,I'm finally painting it!)The Volare was cosmetically rough,but just needed some tune up stuff to get it running for daily use.I rebuilt the carb,and used the 5 gas analylizer in the shop to tune it to perfection(it took 4 hours to rebuild,I spent 5 hours adjusting it).It started and ran better,but I knew there was room for improvement.My next task on the list was to adjust the valves,mostly becuase of the noise(it sounded like an old Teletype machine!).I set the clearance at .010" on the intake,and .020" exhaust per the factory manual(my father was smart to buy the mechanical AND electrical manuals as part of the new car purchase deal!)The valve adjustment made such a positive difference that I had to adjust the carb again.The first trip after transferring the tags was to my parent's house.My father couldn't believe how quiet and smooth it ran! So,good for you for doing this maintainance.Engines require so little routine adjustment that it sometimes gets forgotten anymore.

My valves are out of wack and i need to know how to adjust them back right.


The best way to do this is. find out what your gap measurement. start with the top dead center #1 cylinder adjust the intake valves and then the exhaust valves. if your valves have oil caked up on them. That means cheap oil burning you can scrape it off clean with carb cleaner vacuum out. Use quality oil, Lucus. Hope that helps.
